The DisOrient Asian American Film Festival of Oregon returns April 10th, 11th, 12th & 13th, 2014 to the Bijou Art Cinemas in Eugene, Oregon. DisOrient is a social justice film festival dedicated to deconstructing the media stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans as "Orientals". We believe in the power of film-as-art to educate, heal and improve the lives of people by giving voice to our experiences.
